Have a look and come join us for a glass of Port wine!

The space

This classic, 200-year-old flat was the birthplace in 1875 of Portuguese author Joaquim Antunes Leitão, and has protected status. It has 2 bedrooms and can house 4 people comfortably as it has a little over 100 sq. meters. It’s in a superb, central location, which is perfect if you want to stay in the heart of Porto. Just minutes away from the best shopping areas, restaurants, monuments, buses, trams and metro, this flat is particularly suited for people who like to be at the center of city life. You’ll be within walking distance of lively bars, cafes and eateries to join in with the locals as well as visitors from around the world! We don’t have any TVs or other entertainment in the place because there is so much else to do just out the door! We are in a lively part of town so we have double-glazed windows throughout the flat to insure maximum comfort for our guests, but some street noise is unavoidable.
Important: Please note that the listed price is for 1 or 2 people using one bedroom (each bedroom has one queen-sized bed). If 2 people come and they each want their own bedroom, we will charge an additional 20 euros for extra linen cleaning charges to be paid upon arrival.

Guest access

The entire flat is at your disposal – enjoy its funky, personalized décor and treat it with loving care!

Interaction with guests

We really love our city and all it has to offer and will be happy to share our local knowledge with you – whether you're looking for a great place to eat fresh grilled fish or a stroll along the beachfront, we can help point you in the right direction.

There aren't enough words to describe this AirBnB experience, and it was a life-changing one. Kurt and Teresa are the most amazing hosts ever. From the port shared at our first greeting to the many thoughtful interactions with them, they made our Porto stay the most memorable of our 9-day Portugal vacation. The home is lovely, and even more hip than it looks in the photos. There are wonderful touches all over the home that make it a bright and welcoming space. Although located in the busy city center, there are double windows and black out curtains so noise and lights were not an issue. The beds are comfortable and the home is stocked with plenty of supplies. There are restaurants, shops and a laundromat close by. So many fun places to see! Their communication was prompt and informative. They were very helpful getting to the parking garage located just across the street. The parking was very affordable and safe. Easy entrance and exit. You will be very lucky if you have the chance to meet these amazing humans, and enjoy the space that they have created for we travel lovers.

We have spent some magic days in our visit to Porto in Kurt & Teresa´s flat, I cannot imagine a better place were to say goodby to Portugal. Since the very beginning Teresa received us in such a warm way and made as feel as we were at home, everything was magic and full of special details; fresh flowers, lovely linens and art, Teresa´s art giving the house a personal and unique atmosphere. What you see in pictures is real, but when you are there you may not want to leave!! The location is perfect close to the nicest and more interest spots of this charming city. We are so thankful to this wonderful persons Kurt & Teresa, we were so lucky to meet them and share some very special time together. The highlight of our time in Portugal!!!

Kurt took some time to go over the lay of the land with us and the local information they provided was thorough and very much appreciated. The apartment is even better than the photos and very centrally located. The welcome port wine was a very nice touch. Would definitely recommend this apartment and our hosts.

Very spacious, full of natural light, well located apartment. You can walk to almost everywhere in the city from this location. There is an abundance of restaurants very near by. The cleanliness of this apartment surpasses all levels we have experienced with airbnb so far. The attention to detail of these hosts is surprising. Kurt checked us in, he was there when we arrived and although it was late in the afternoon, never looked at his watch and was prepared with a lot of information and ready to answer all our questions. The communication with Kurt is very easy, whether via email or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), he responds quickly. We had a little issue with the drain in the shower, within minutes Kurt arrived with tools and equipment to successfully remedy the problem. Very much appreciated. We definitely highly recommend a stay in Kurt's apartment. It's very worth it!

Kurt & Teresa User ProfileKurt & Teresa is a superhost.

Teresa and I have lived and travelled in many countries so we know how important it is to feel welcomed when arriving in a new place. Teresa grew up in Tras-os-Montes in the north of Portugal and I am originally from San Francisco in the U.S. Our professional backgrounds are in the field of education. Teresa owned and operated her own Montessori pre-school in Porto for 20 years and I taught at the local Universidade Catolica Portuguesa. We lived in Asia for 5 years where Teresa learned the art of Chinese brush painting. You will see her paintings and other Asian touches in the decoration of our apartment.. I love taking my bicycle for a ride along the river or down the coast, stopping to eat freshly grilled fish at a local restaurant. I also like playing golf on the local courses around the Porto area. And a great habit I picked up in Asia is the art of tea drinking – I love the ceremony around tea and can’t go a day without my Puer or Oolongs. Teresa loves to paint and read in her spare time and has studied color therapy.
We enjoy hosting and meeting people from all over the world. So come and share a glass of Port wine with us and spend some time in our fantastic city!
